She knew

I am back today with another art journal spread. This time I was inspired by a quote I found on Pinterest. Unfortunately I have know idea who said this. I used to be an avid runner and recently have just started to get back into it. I thought this quote was perfect.

I started by writing some thoughts and feelings down in my art journal.

Next I went over this with some bleeding art tissue paper. and Gesso.

I then mixed red and white paint to make a gradient background. I completed the background with various stamps and stencils using white and black ink and paint.

Next step was to draw the silhouette of my runner. I then painted each one with a mix of the red and black paint. I then adhered them to the page and went around each one with a white pen so they really popped off of the page.

I am going to submit this to two wonderful challenges. The first one is Challenges 4 Everyone Anything goes. The second one is shades of one color from Crafty Hands. As always thank you very much for stopping by be sure to check out the two challenges.
